Girl Code… Finally Decoded

by on Wed, 06/12/2013 at 12:04pm ET Comments


One thing I’ve learned in life is that you have to be able to laugh, even through the most difficult situations. A good sense of humor is a superpower!  Much like a cape of confidence, humor allows you to shake off a stressful scenario and shows you can own your past, even if it’s at times extremely embarrassing!  There will always be another woman who will share your pain… and not just laugh at you, but with you as well!


One up and coming, female-friendly, and funny TV show that most young women can most definitely identify with is GIRL CODE on MTV.  GIRL CODE is a spin-off series of the previous MTV2 show, GUY CODE, and the concept revolves around the hilarities of women’s behavior:  the good, the bad, and the ugly!  What makes the show so incredibly irresistible is the cast which includes a mix of Models, Musicians, and Comedians.  The topics include everything from frenemies, bad hair days, sexting, bathroom etiquette, and girl’s night out. The series includes segments called “I Can’t” where women have the chance to gripe about their pet peeves, as well as segments called “Is That Weird?” and “Long Story Short” where ladies confess their secret odd habits and at times embarrassing personal situations.  During each episode, there are several women’s topics which the cast gets a chance to discuss and weigh in with their own opinions on the appropriate “Girl Code” to follow.  Whether their answers are outrageously ridiculous or completely relatable, it will have you laughing hysterically from beginning to end!


Here is a look at some of the show’s female cast members, noteworthy quotes, and more information on de-coding the complexities of the female formula as well as following the cast’s continuing successful careers:
